Dr Jesper Grau Eriksen - University of Southern Denmark

Dr Jesper Grau Eriksen talks to ecancer at the 2013 SIOG meeting in Copenhagen about making the decision to treat a geriatric patient with radiotherapy.

This decision can often prove difficult as evidence has shown that treatment with radiotherapy does not always increase overall survival; however, studies do suggest that it does reduce the number of cancer related deaths.
